Does Photos have a problem sharing?

    Photos does not seem to want to share with Aperture, though perhaps I set it up incorrectly.

    Can photos and aperture somehow share one library? Since Aperture is dying and Photos seems somewhat limiting, can Photos (with its fun faces feature which doesn't seem to be in Lightroom) share a library with Lightroom (without your library being duplicated between the two)???

    Try holding down option when you open Aperture, and reselect your library. The migration changes the extension so it is now Aperture Library.migratedaplibrary and this seems to mess up Aperture (and iPhoto, I think). Holding down option lets you reselect the library.

    I doubt Photos will play well with Lightroom, though...have to wait and see.
